Lightroom 101: October 13

September 25, 2012

We’re excited to be presenting a workshop all about Lightroom on October 13, 2012 at MEI Secondary School in Abbotsford.  A big thank you to Rick Having, who will be teaching the workshop.

This will be a full day workshop, from 9am-4:30pm (bring your own lunch).  The cost for non MWAC members is just $50 (includes remaining 2012 membership).  There are a total of 28 seats available in the workshop.  Each participant will have their own computer work station for hands on learning. Once your payment is in you will be considered registered.  No payment = not registered. Payment can be given in person to Shari Saysomsack or mailed to 16162 Springside Ct, Surrey, BC, V4N 1S2 (paypal may also be an option).  This is an incredible deal for a full day workshop, let alone one in a computer lab.  Whether you’re just starting out with photography or more experienced, this is a wonderful opportunity!  A course such as this would have been so valuable when I was just starting out, it’s so much better to learn how to do something right the first time.  Therefore, if you’re trying to decide if you should come to this, we whole heartedly would say, “come!”  We are not planning on doing something similar in the future, therefore please don’t wait until next time since there may not be a next time.  This workshop is for everyone!

Wondering what Lightroom actually is?  Check out this short video clip to get a better idea, http://tv.adobe.com/watch/getting-started-with-adobe-photoshop-lightroom-3/what-is-lightroom/.  Lightroom is very user friendly, quite affordable and perfect for the hobbyist photographer.  We will be referring to editing in lightroom throughout the 2013 year. Lightroom will help you take your images from ordinary to extraordinary.
